FLOODS: Keep sandbags in place as more rain expected

People are being warned not to tamper with or move sandbags as expected rain brings the risk of another rise in river levels.

Thames Valley Police are warning that despite Sunday's stable weather flood levels will probably rise again due to the rain water already in the systems and further rain anticipated in the week ahead. 

It is anticipated that levels will peak again this evening and into Tuesday morning.

The police statement warns: "These increased levels will remain for a few days but we do not expect any properties that haven’t already flooded to be impacted. However, those that have flooded may be flooded again.

"Flooded areas represent a risk to personal safety and as we move into half term week we are advising people to stay away from those areas affected."
